Dr. John Abd al-Qadir and Jamila Davies lead Living Peace, a program that reflects the core mission of our International Peace Center and Farm of Peace community, which is to bring the experience and practical, living reality of peace, one heart and one relationship at a time, to a world in need of it.
Too often we think of peace as just an absense of violence or abuse – whether in our relationships, family, community or world. Yet peace can’t be sustained as absence. Only when it becomes a living reality through which we are inspired and passionately engaged, discovering meaning, intimacy, divine purpose, and beauty with partners, family, neighbors and all whom we encounter, only then are we truly at peace, at one with all that is, living peace, and with every breath helping to sustain it at home and in the world.
